Intelligentsia (vocalist, Bron, & founder and composer Mirai) combine layers of electronic sound with a soaring vocal range, and aim to re-animate the machine dominated world of electronica with a new body of attention-grabbing work, designed for live performance. The new tracks will be reminiscent of their best seller Interstella and will explore how the amalgamation of organic vocal and synthetic sounds can be replicated on the stage to electrifying effect. The sound of Intelligentsia draws on the rich history of opera and world music, with Bron singing in Latin, German, English, Japanese and Italian. In their high energy live performances, Mirai utilises his custom-built tactile synthesizers and other cutting edge musical technology to transform their complex compositions into tangible, personal experiences.
Intelligentsia's prime directive is to bring together artists on the vanguard of innovative philosophy and positive future. With MIRAI at the helm in London & Tokyo, they have written soundtracks for Japanese video games and national TV and radio with music pressed to 250,000 + units. Intelligentsia's first gig was in Camden Palace (Koko), London, in 1991, and they have performed at over 50 live events worldwide, including the Interactive Live Show with electro pioneer Susumu Hirasawa (P-Model, Japan), The Future of Music (Denmark), Emotions (Belgium), the Alfa Centauri festival (Netherlands), and at the Yokohama Sports Stadium and Tocho Skyscraper in Japan. Their portfolio features the global artist project World Wide Kind, new music devices such as the Body-Drum, the Gypsy-Midi exo-skeleton, and digital content & music collaboration for celebrities Christopher Currell (ex-Michael Jackson Band), Uri Geller, Morley Robertson (J-Wave Radio / Harvard electronic music pundit), and Kenso Kato (Japanese TV & Multimedia personality).
